Go Cubs Go!

I've had a pretty laid back weekend which has been really nice. We grilled out and then played softball in the backyard. I'm knee-deep into Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death by M.C. Beaton. I really have enjoyed this book so far. It is very laid back and a definite cozy but still I am enjoying reading about Agatha. More reviews will be coming soon. Tomorrow is going to be a fun day as I'm off to Chicago on a bus trip to see the Cubbies play. Hence the title of this post. :) I'm ready to have a few beers and a hotdog or two. It was a stressfull and emotional week for me.
My oldest baby is five and I registered him for kindergarten this week. I got tears in my eyes just looking at him in his brand new Spiderman backpack. What am I going to do when he actually starts school? Plus, we had to go to the doctor for a physical which meant four shots! Very traumatic to say the least. But all is well now and he is very excited for school. Think of me tomorrow cause I'll be singing Go Cubs Go!


  1. Good to see your post invoking "Go, Cubs, Go" by Steve Goodman. He often doesn't get his due. You might be interested in my 800-page biography, "Steve Goodman: Facing the Music." The book delves deeply into the genesis of "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" and its semi-sequel, "Go, Cubs, Go."

    You can find out more at my Internet site (below). Amazingly, the book's first printing sold out in just eight months, all 5,000 copies, and a second printing of 5,000 is available now. The second printing includes hundreds of little updates and additions, including 30 more photos for a total of 575. It just won a 2008 IPPY (Independent Publishers Association) silver medal for biography: To order a second-printing copy, see the "online store" page of my site. Just trying to spread word about the book. Feel free to do the same!
